IF not for the fact that this site is rife with evidence, proving how America’s academic cesspool has lost all its moral bearings, the shock featured at today’s commentary would be that much more shocking. Huh? Nevertheless, swift and decisive action must be taken. Forthwith. Hang on.
Without a scintilla of a doubt, it is both a paradox & pitfall of liberal democracies, in a time of (im)moral relativism, which is mainly responsible for the havoc wrought by leftist academia.
As a result, the death of the west, or its survival, runs through the campuses, though many still have their blinders on when it comes to academic life at U.S. campuses, and elsewhere in the west. And this false sense of security precludes any normal safety tips which should accompany everyday living, both inside or outside university confines.
Even more so, few bat an eye when Israel’s Jewish soldiers are maligned for NOT RAPING “Palestinian” women, as evidenced at a recent U.S. college campus forum. Yes, the twisted hatred/sickness leveled against Israel & Jews alike has poisoned the campus well, to the point that a leader at a student club feels free enough to lob terrorist threats and incitement towards Israelis/Jews in plain view!
Did SFSU Student Post Selfie with Knife: ‘I Want to Stab an Israeli Soldier’ It appears the president of a university-funded student group at San Francisco State boasted how much he loved his knife and that it made him want to stab an Israeli soldier.

Tumblr page allegedly created by president of SFSU-funded student organization. Photo Credit: Tumblr web cached page The Simon Wiesenthal Center sent a warning to officials at San Francisco State University on Monday, Dec. 2, advising them of a potential threat to Jewish students there.
The basis for the warning was the posting on the social media forum Tumblr which appears to be by the president of San Francisco State’s General Union of Palestine Students, Mohammad Hammad. The photo shows Hammad with a knife, beneath which is the caption, “I seriously can not get over how much I love this blade. It is the sharpest thing I own and cuts through everything like butter and just holding it makes me want to stab an Israeli soldier.”
The AMCHA Initiative, the co-founder of which has been featured in The Jewish Press for her tireless work in exposing anti-Semitism on California campuses, first found the photo and threatening language. Earlier this month, AMCHA discovered that GUPS was involved in another event at SFSU at which students were encouraged to create art projects using a stencil bearing the image of a notorious terrorist and another stencil that stated “MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS KILLED COLONIZERS.”
Both AMCHA and the Wiesenthal Center contacted SFSU President Leslie Wong over the past several days, warning her that statements such as the one allegedly issued by Hammad, especially given the other recent event in which GUPS was involved that also glorified killers of Jews, potentially constitute a threat to the university’s Jewish students.
The Wiesenthal Center told Wong and issued a public statement that “it is outrageous and unacceptable that the leader of a university-funded group would invoke a message of death and violence.” “How can Jewish students feel safe on a campus where the leader of a university-sanctioned and funded student organization, known for its antisemitic activity, has publicly proclaimed his desire to stab an Israeli soldier? “President Wong needs to take immediate and firm steps to ensure the safety and well-being of Jewish students at San Francisco State,”
Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, co-founder of the AMCHA Initiative, told The Jewish Press by email. The photo and violent statement disappeared from Hammad’s account after the two Jewish groups contacted Wong, but a cached version of the picture on Tumblr remains.

It is imperative to take note of the following interlocking goals and aims; the “ties that bind” the General Student Union of Palestine Students and its sister organ, the Muslim Student Association, MSA.
In fact, MSA’s edifice has been stripped bare at this site through the Muslim Student Association (MSA): Islamic student arm of Muslim Brotherhood Mafia; HUMA ABEDIN Board member too. What Does This Mean? Indeed, both “student” groups are “brothers-in-arms”, as they operate as a tag team!
What’s to be done, other than wringing ones hands and railing? And aside from a tried and true method, threatening to withhold alumni donations to those who have an affiliation therein, to rid anti-semitism on college campuses: the last “acceptable” prejudice/bias & its dangerous effects…a clear warning/message to parents, what else is left? Plenty.
First and foremost, know your rights! Not only is it against the law to issue terrorist threats and incite towards a hate crime,
What is a hate crime?These are crimes committed against individuals or groups or property based on the real or perceived race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, national origin, or ethnicity of the victims. The role played by these personal characteristics in motivating the offender is the key difference between hate crimes and other crimes…. but it violates Title VI of the Civil Rights Act !
Legal protection exists, at least in theory. After a six-year battle by ZOA and others, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued a 2010 policy that Title VI of the Civil Rights Act would be enforced to protect Jewish students and students of other religious/ethnic groups who are harassed at publicly-funded schools.
In one clean sweep, OCR recently dismissed three Title VI cases filed on behalf of Jewish students. All three relate to unrelenting anti-Semitism on University of California campuses, which university officials had largely ignored.
Not being one who finds comfort in stereotypical leanings, but it is hard to imagine that most Jewish students on campus (as they are in the above line of fire!) don’t have personal access to familial legal advice, aside from certain organizations set up to assist, namely the Academic Bill of Rights/David Horowitz, Inside Higher Ed, as an example. Just as an aside, personally, have enough legal eagles in my own family that their own firm can be set up, and this is hardly an anomaly herein.
The point being, NO student should ever feel threatened while studying at their respective campus, let alone San Francisco State University, a part of California’s anti-semitic cesspool. Reach out near or far, but none dare stay silent or feel intimidated, either the students or their parents.
That being said, this blog implores all parents to ship their kiddies ( to a lesser degree, Christians too) off with a pre-send off gift, one which will empower them long after they leave their respective campuses:

For the (academic) record, exhorting the desire to kill Israelis IS the same as inciting to kill Jews! No diff. Don’t forget it.
